Chairman and CEO of The Industrial Group Keynote Speaker at The American University’s Graduation Ceremony

The American University in Cairo (AUC) held its Spring 2015 commencement ceremonies that witnessed the graduation of 540 bachelor’s degree candidates, of whom 90 graduated with honors, 105 with high honors and 91 with highest honors. Master’s degrees were awarded to 127 candidates at the graduate commencement, and one PhD was earned by Irene Gabriel, mechanical engineering.

Sheikh Hussein A. Al-Banawi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Industrial Group and author of The Unknown Leader was the keynote speaker at the graduate commencement.

At the graduate commencement, Sheikh Al-Banawi, explained to graduates that leadership is a lifetime journey where wealth should not be the ultimate goal. “Leadership often begins with an aspiring dream, and the most powerful dreams aren’t about wealth,” he affirmed. “I’ve rarely seen people who aim purely at wealth end up happy. What intrigues and inspires us in the stories of people we admire is generally not the money they may have accumulated, but rather the goals they attained, the obstacles they overcame and the legacies they left behind. These are what make a story worth repeating. The scars of battle are far more captivating and impressive than the medals of victory.”
